Revision as of 20:30, March 3, 2011

For the novels and other books, see Books.

There are currently five comics in the Mass Effect universe. As the game is considered to be the player's story, none of comics, like the novels, feature Commander Shepard as the main character. The sole exception is Mass Effect: Genesis, which, being interactive, allows the player to control Shepard's decisions.

Upcoming Comics

  • On March 13, 2010, BioWare and Dark Horse greenlit a third Mass Effect comic series. As yet unnamed, it will feature another original story developed by Mac Walters and John Jackson Miller, this time set after the events of Mass Effect 2. Unlike Redemption and Evolution, the new series will have no set length and will be produced on an ongoing basis.[4]
